Xml CU1466B-Elder et al. November 19, 2004 15:41 Structure and function of bacteria They are composed of high molecular weight polysaccharides, and their secretion may depend on environmental conditions, especially the nutritional environment. Unlike the cell wall, the capsule does not provide physical strength, and does not function as a permeability barrier. The mucoid capsule, sometimes referred to as the ‘slime layer’, provides protection from drying, and helps the coated bacteria to evade the host immune system by preventing their engulfment by phagocytic cells.
Cell growth then slows down and usually stops within a single generation time: the bacteria then enter a stationary phase. The cells are still viable, but metabolism is readjusted in order to maintain the cells only, without growth. Certain bacteria can then Once inside the cell, nutrients serve as raw materials for precursor metabolites required for synthesis. The metabolites are produced by three central pathways: the Embden–Meyerhof–Parnas (EMP) pathway, the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, and the pentose phosphate shunt.
